Ian Withnall was Field Director/DOP and then Series Producer for Episodes 3 to 6 on this new Character driven Ob Doc series.
After shooting 9 out of the 18 stories for the series, Ian also wrote as well as Series Produced the final four episodes.
There was lots of travel, equipment, logistics and contract work, all beautifully managed by our Line Producer Sharen Kenny.
Based on the trials and tribulations of the people who make a living digging for sapphires, this is a visually spectacular and highly entertaining TV series.
Character driven narratives follow the every day events of the Gem Hunters, a mix of professional miners who come from a huge range of backgrounds but share one common passion. Sapphires!
Great people, great crew, beautiful location and a really fun show to produce.
A big thanks to Wildbear Entertainment and the WB Brisbane team for having us along for what was a great production ride!
“Gem Hunters Down Under” premieres on Tuesday May 10th, 2022 @ 9.30 pm on 7mate Australia.
